2016 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir

2016 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir


The Wine.
Ruby red with strawberry, raspberry and red and black cherry fruit. Also hints of star anise, cloves and soy. On the palate the wine shows complex savoury fruit and spice and is long, textural and juicy.

Bright, young fruit now will match well with crispy duck breast or a piece of wagyu beef with a wild mushroom sauce. Or cellar for five to eight years to achieve softness and savoury notes and extra complexity.


The 2016 Vintage.
Another lovely vintage, generous in style and quality. The even conditions this vintagelead to wines of power and structure, with a lovely core of fruit. While the 2015 wines were all about fruit purity and high natural acidity, our 2016 wines are about rich, ripe fruit and phenolics resulting in intense ripe, structured wines which should, like the 2015’s, cellar well for many years.
